1- History of the SXM Festival

Considered as the most beautiful festival in the world, the SXM Festival immediately established itself as the reference in terms of festive events. Indeed, all electronic music is in the spotlight, in magical places nestled in the middle of dreamlike settings. This spring of 2020 opened with the 5th edition of this world-renowned event, which marks the rebirth of the positive and optimistic spirit of the people of Saint Martin, after the devastating passage of Hurricane Irma in 2017. The 2018 edition of the SXM was then canceled.

Despite the presence of several thousand electro music lovers, the festival's organization allows everyone to enjoy these magical moments. From the 300 meters of Happy Bay beach, where two spectacular stages are set up, the music never stops during the SXM Festival, from Boho Beach (Laila's beach club - Baie Nettlé) on house beats, to techno music at Simpson Bay's Lotus. You can enjoy the extraordinary sight of planes landing on the airport runway, on the Beach Club, on the sound of house drums. Then, you can continue dancing on Roxxy Beach, in Simpson Bay. Don't miss the famous Jungle Party, where music and cocktails welcome you to a tropical oasis. And why not hop on board a boat for a lively cruise led, by an exceptional DJ, with an open bar at your disposal? Finally, the must of the Festival: the Villa Party which takes place on Saturdays, in the Sandy line villa, in Les Terres Basses. This wonderful place is the place of predilection for all VIPs, who appreciate this unique villa's incredible infrastructures.

4- Limiting the environmental footprint

The SXM Festival is concerned about limiting its environmental footprint as much as possible. This is why the organizers build their stage sets with recycled materials, but also by recovering wooden pallets abandoned by cruise ships during their stopover in Saint-Martin, deadwood, and flippers that have fallen naturally from trees, as well as sails from the ship's graveyard. The 2020 edition has also committed to using only biodegradable products, and to using solar energy for its electricity.
